Chalk the Pier - Harborfest!

Join us Saturday, July 24th 10am to 5pm when artists young and old from across Central New York gather to create maritime-themed works in chalk and pastel.  While you are taking in the sights and the Lake Ontario breeze, visit our Art Market that takes place at the same time.  We are excited to bring in crafters and artisans who create their works for sale to complement the chalk works. This is a first ever event for Oswego and the Maritime Museum, and sure to be one that can’t be missed!  Reservation required, tickets go on sale May 15th.

This event will take place during Oswego's Harborfest!  In addition to art, come explore the Maritime Museum and our fleet of historic vessels.
